wanted to go golfing at the presidio, i said i can't walk that much, i just had my knee replaced. melinda has been an incredible partner, it's a partnership between our partners in the u.s. attorney offices and our partners in state and local government. when i think about the hate crimes cases and the other cases i've done, i've made friends for life with local law enforcement officers, with local da's and local community leaders who have been our eyes and ears. when i look around this audience i really appreciate the fact you have all the ingredients of reform and improvement. i have had the privilege of serving in the federal government, as melinda described, i've had the privilege of serving in state government as a state cabinet official back in maryland, i've had the privilege of serving as a local elected official and governor -- once a local elected official, always a local elected official. what i learned from that is partnership is what it's all about. if you want to confront the most vexing problems, you have to bring people across an ideological spectrum, you have to inclu

, melinda crane. tell us more about his reception. >> it was friendly. the chancellor definitely praised the steps taken so far and she welcomed and wished letta a lucky hand for the sake of europe and germany. she was quite firm and made it clear that germany would be sticking to their guns as far as the need for continuing to cut back on that and get finances in order. mr. letta also is saying that he does want the governor in harmony with germany saying that he would be asking the chancellor to share some of her experiences as to how to manage a grand coalition. she had one in her first term of office and he has one now. he was also staking out to rein saying he expects europe to be more proactive in terms of growth policy in the future. >> it sounds like he's not planning to deviate from the austerity course. >> there is recognition here that the italian coalition is fragile and there is recognition that berlin is looking increasingly isolated facing criticism not only in rome and athens but also paris and even in brussels, but the chancellor is maintaining a stoic, and termination,

-mart prepared you for this job. are there work with bill and melinda gates and wal-mart helped prepare you for this work? >> the bill and melinda gates foundation and wal-mart has done in terms of preparation is my experience around grant making. that has two elements to it that i think are helpful and important. one is that i spend much more of my day saying no than yes. there are many, many wonderful things that are happening in the world, and even a foundation as large as the bill and melinda gates foundation, the vast majority of requests are actually noes. and so that experience of how to respect there are incredibly wonderful things going on that people are coming to you about but saying no in a respectful way, respectful of their time, respectful of their ideas and their energy. so i think that's an important part of the job. the second thing i would say is actually doing grant making. how one thinks about spending money for impact? and that experience is about, what is the strategy? how does this spending connect with that strategy? how am i clearly focused on impact? what are the

speaker. >>> good afternoon. my name is melinda [speaker not understood], and i'm with [speaker not understood] neighbors association. and i'm here to talk about a couple things. the first thing was one of the first things you mentioned, supervisor wiener, was the new and improved transparency [speaker not understood]. that's why you wrote the legislation. as i read your legislation, to me it became less transparent and more oblique, and actually the word that's used by the hayes team organization when they looked through the legislation, they said especially around the approval action definitions, it was ambiguous. and i concur with that. i read through it it and i found it to be very ambiguous. and, so, that doesn't help in transparency whether it's first approval or approval action is not clearly defined for the average person. secondly, i think the transparency -- the fact that you're considering hearing ceqa appeals at a smaller committee of the board of supervisors and then having the final vote in front of all of them, to me also doesn't wreak of true transparency because
